View Full Version : Anyone flour wings and grill???

Ive got some wings thawed I need to get rid of, and its beautiful out so the plan is to go with the kettle. A little indirect action, maybe some wood, finish over coals if need be. Im wondering though if it would be smart to flour these to get a nice crust skin. Plenty of people do it with oven or fried situations and high heat, but will it work with an indirect heat?

Yep.I like to use corn starch instead of flour.

I actually used a premade mix from the store. I am not sure how just flour will turn out though.

We tried the recipe from dizzy pig bbq.

Yup we grill fried chicken all the time. The fat from the chicken mixed with the flour makes a great coating. We just season or flour.

I marinate the wings in a hot sauce (usually Frank's) then bread with Panko. Here's a tip: don't handle them too much when cooking. Some of the breading might get knocked off.

I also marinate but use buttermilk and throw on a chunk of wood too

cool, I made a mix up of flour with some lawrys, garlic, cayenne, habanero, black pepper, and some paprika.

I dried the wings and shaked them in the flour and back in the fridge, looks to absorb pretty easily so I might re coat them before I put them on (I made too much flour mix)

Now I saw some recipes call for them to be sauced pre cook? I like the idea of the sauce "baked" into the wing but fear it may not crisp up correctly. Anyone do it this way? I was thinking maybe saucing at the end and hitting them with direct heat

Your thinking about saucing them would be spot on. Indirect to cook direct to crisp up.
